Thank you so much <3 / Hiatus / Yaoi-con 2011

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 13, 2011, 7:35 PM


Hi guys! I'm sorry i've been really inactive recently, a lot has been going on. ;v;
But i wanted to say thank you to everyone who sent me birthday wishes the other day!! Thank you all so much. I felt really touched.

And to feature the lovely pictures these people drew for me~ :iconyeyplz:

Happy Birthday Laura by LilbangHBD LOWAHWAHWAH by RabuRabbitTO Lowah by Servent-of-Melodies

...I think this is a good indication of where my head's been in the past two months. u vu I've been geeking out about Tales of Xillia on Tumblr so much hahahah it's taken up a lot of my attention.
Anyway, thank you so much! If you drew me something please let me know! I don't come to DA that often anymore so i most likely missed something... :icondesucryplz:
_______________________

But now onto the not so happy stuff. I'm on a mini hiatus again. It's not necessarily school work that's keeping me away from DA, but I feel really depressed when i come here. I've been in an art slump for a while now and even though i've been submitting things here and there, they're not my best works and i really don't like seeing them because they constantly remind me that i'm not putting enough effort into drawing and coloring. It's just not fun for me anymore...
Lately i've been feeling like my creativity is deteriorating. Even though i color or draw something well... i don't feel satisfied with it. So i've only been doodling these days. With doodles, i don't feel like i'm constantly being judged about how much effort i put into drawing.

Tl;dr - I'm in a slump and i'm slowly trying to get out of it.

Luckily my priority is simply to get better at coloring with photoshop and continue to work on my artbook illustrations. But even with those, i'm afraid that they won't turn out as great as i hope...

_______________________

In other not so depressing news, I'm going to be tabling at Yaoi-con, which is happening next week on Oct. 21st! I'm working on some new prints and buttons for the con and i have to say that i'm really excited for it! I just hope i'll be able to finish in time... ;A; so much to do ahhhhh

Thanks for reading! I don't know when i'll be back... but i hope it'll be soon.

Take your time. Seeing your work is always worth the wait to me ^^
It seems artists like us (Im a writer, it counts xp) get into those pesky slumps. They will rise again when we least expect it, I promise you :nod:

Ohh, that con sounds like... it'd be exciting??? ;;; LOL. Anyway, hope you have fun! Wish I could go -- I'd buy all your stuff! o3o/ Hope you sell out hehehehe

And OMGGGG TALES OF XILLIA YEAH I WANT IT TOO 8C any idea on localization date--?

On the hiatus thing... that just blows! Sorry to hear that you've been having a tough time with your art... hang in there! Hope you get past this block soon, but take your time and don't rush yourself! If you try and force yourself to draw, it might make you feel worse, so take it easy and just doodle or do something else? Maybe practice a different hobby and take a break from art for a while? :C In any case, wishing you the best of luck! \o/

Ohh... well, those who don't buy don't know what they're missing!!

dfskgjlh the entire Tales series is so great WHY ISN'T THERE A BIGGER WESTERN FANDOM do you think it's because the early games weren't well-received that the company didn't advertise/plan to localize later titles, or did the company just never spend much on publicity in the first place? :S

You're very welcome! I know that you probably aren't familiar with me at all but like if you ever want to talk/rant about anything...? I'll be willing to listen! ;A;"" (cos I'm not good at anything else... orz)

Hnnng the Tales series will always be shadowed by the Final Fantasy series and other JRPGs in the western world. The Tales games were never that that well publicized. I've never once seen a commercial, or an ad in a magazine, or even a single poster in a store showing off the game 8(

;alfksa;f;afsk Bawwww you're so sweet :icontearplz::iconbrohugplz:

Mwahhh, that kind of sucks! :shakefish: Especially considering how well it's done in its original country... eue;;; Maybe there isn't a market for "traditional" fantasy-style games in the Western market? Seems that the most popular games are sci-fi shoot-em-ups... OTL

... Actually, come to think of it I think I saw an advertising poster for Tales of Symphonia many years back in a Shonen Jump magazine! But other than that, I've never seen any ads for it either... I wonder why not? It's such a high-quality franchise, I'm sure people will jump on it if only given the chance. (If they'll play games like Dragon Quest and whatnot... or maybe that's my personal bias??? haha because I never liked those games much...;;; )

sdjlslkg well like, if you are willing, and I guess I'd really like to be friends or something too--? ;A; :blush:
